Another TV hit for travelers–this time ITALY is the destination.
I have Longitude books to thank for this discovery, and you can browse the whole collection of these mysteries at their site. If you don’t already get their newsletter, I highly recommend it for outstanding travel books.
Aurelio Zen mysteries by Michael Dibdin air on PBS, Sunday evenings July 17-31.
- Tour Sardinia with Vendetta.
- Tour Rome with Cabal.
Venice(correction) Perugia with Ratking.
The brooding Middelmarch (BBC) actor, Rufus Sewell, plays the detective. (You may have seen him in the TV version of [amazon_link id=”045123281X” target=”_blank” ]Pillars of the Earth[/amazon_link].)

Before we went to Italy I read nearly all of the Donna Leon mysteries set in Venice, and I read a couple of a series about an art appraiser by Ian Pears, which I did not like as much, but you may like those, too. Have you read any of the Aurelio Zen mysteries? I have not, but am really looking forward to this series on Public Broadcasting.
A reader has corrected the erroneous destination I listed for Ratking. Which calls into question my use of the Venice picture. Dibdin, did however, write a book set in Venice–Dead Lagoon,and . My apologies to everyone for getting that wrong. It was incorrect in some promotional materials and I did not check it. Shame on me.
